Looking for Tin-lMate.
The New York Evening Post has been
Marching industriously and unceasingly
tor "A<i lericau tin-plate," and pig tin
J ^ver since the McKinley committee
rtod, summer before last, that tlic
ufacture of this article had passed
nd the experimental stage in this
ity. The Post has also been trying
Ml this time to buy, at regular market
fates, a ton or two of American pig tin
or a commercial quantity of home made
fin-plate, but hitherto in vain. When
the Philadelphia high tariff papers a
few days ago reported the discovery of
a real American tin-plate works in that
city, the News naturally took up the
j trail. It sent its Philadelphia
tvith instructions to find any of that tin
plate, if it was in the market. He went
to N. & G. Taylor's place, at No. 303
Branch street, where tho tin-plate was
^ .Mid to be manufactured. He saw both
? members of tho firm, but they "refused
absolutely to talk for publication."
- 'With dealers in tin and tin-plate he had
better luck. Ilis first call was upon
Merchant & Co., on Arch street above
Fifth, with the head of which firm he
held the following interview :
"Have you secured any of then
the famous Teiuescal tin mines .
of Mr. Merchant, the head of the firm.
"No," he r
have heard of
"But, according to the TVcaaand Inquirer,
N. & G. Taylor have been receiving large
' quantities of it."
Mr. Merchant's eyes twinkled. He did
I not reply at once, but seemed R> be laugh*
j ing inwardly. Then he said :

J "Certainly; we are next to the bigirest
Importers of tin plate in the city. We im
port about 400 tons a year, and *tl

that is ridiculous. Besides, it would
I make any difference in the cost of tin
\ plute if it'were true. Pig-tin is free, and it
• would be cheaper to get it from the other
'side than from California."
"How are prices of tin-plate affected by
these alleged American manufactories?''
"Prices are about 15 per cent higher than
they were before the new tariff' law. They
not quite as much higher as the rate of
duty, because just before the
into operation the dealers secured large
supplies of tin-plate, and thus, iu a

"Do you think tin mining and tin-plate
ufacturing will ever amount to much
in this country ?"
"They may in time, in a good, long time.
Until then prices will remain high as Ion
us the present tariff is in operation,
they must go higher soon. I have bee
disgusted with some of the
the stuff they have printed
jects of late. They do n<
, strained by truth or common sense."

President when he hears,

in keeping this tax receipt scandal stirred
up, that the United States marshal for
this district, the postmaster of Wil
mington, tho private secretary of Sena
tor Higgins, and various subordinate
Federal otllcials have been mixed up in
a clandestine deal (so clandestine that it
was kept from tho "personal knowledge"
of Senator Higgins himself) with a brace
of dishonest Democratic tax collectors
who sold out their party, (thoro you
have it again), pocketed the money and
then—more shame to them—didn't even
we fear he
pay their office rent. The United States
marshal is tho chief of the Federal po
lice for Delaware. Is his co-operation
in this deal an exemplification
of that "fitness and not party
service " which should be " the essen
tial test" of his qualification for that
position? Suppose his predecessor,
Marshal Newlin, had been caught in
underhand transaction of this kind with
a Republican collector who sold out his
party and pocketed tho money, would

confounded with the government rain
